Plan a bus route using Calgary Transit.
If you wish to find a home close to a transit stop one of the best resources is Google Maps. Zoom in to your preferred address and small blue boxes will appear along bus lines. These are the transit stops and further review will even show you the transit number which can be looked up on the route maps.
Biking in Calgary
Even though our winters can be more challenging, Calgary has a strong biking culture and ever growing bike pathway system. The City of Calgary even provides a Pathways and Bikeways app to keep you going in the right direction. For trip planning, the bike system map and connections to various events and resources visit the City of Calgary Cycling Resources.
And remember, biking is as much about taking your children for a ride through your community as it is a commuting resource so take advantage of our pathways even if you wouldn't consider a daily commute.
